high after 20 children were murdered in newtown, connecticut. the president, congress and we the people all want to do something constructive to make sure this horror doesn't happen again. the problem, it will happen again no matter what we do. that doesn't mean we should do nothing. however, before acting, let's take a look at the facts. mass shootings in the usa are on the decline. according to criminologist from the minute money department of corrections, mass murder in america was most severe in 1929. in recent years, there were 32 mass killings in the 1980s, 42 in 9 '90s and 26s in the first decade of this century. according to the department of justice, murders of school age children have declined by 42% in the past 15 years. the latest stats show 1% of the murdered kids died at school. now, that's not to diminish the horrible crimes we have seen in connecticut and other places recently. all americans should understand that violence like that harms america's image throughout the world and we do have a gun culture here. no question about it. if the feds can tighten up gun laws with
said for evil to prevail, is for good people to do nothing. i'm going to newtown and elsewhere, harlem, chicago, to stand up for children. you decide how you stand up. there are those that argue some wrongly that we have the right to bear arms. children also have the right to become adults. i'm going to fight for their rights. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> ensure the domestic tranquility. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in new york. let me start tonight by talking about america. the preamble of our constitution addresses two areas of security. one is to provide for the common defense against foreign enemies. the second is to ensure domestic tranquility from violence from within. it is impossible to imagine the congress of the united states ignoring the first of these imperatives. an act of omission that would leave us open to foreign attack and invasion. tragically, we can't say the same about attacks on the country's domestic tranquility. what has the congress done to protect the country? nothing. and here's the
to help each other out. >> we will be leaving newtown to give this small town its streets back. for the residents here to grieve and share together. but we're not going to stop covering this or talking about it in honor of those who died to make those in power take action to stop anything like this from happening again. >>> tonight, two more funerals, two more impossibly small coffins what will america do to stop a madman. >> i am a supporter of the second amendment. but i believe it's time for us to move a different direction. >> and the congresswoman who lost her husband in the long island railroad shooting. >>> also, i'll go one-on-one with a gun advocate who said that lawmakers who vote for gun control have blood on their hands. could he be serious? >>> and why the second amendment doesn't say what you think 2 does. >>> plus a class gunned down, a teacher to protect them. main who lost his daughter. >> they believe that because the problem is guns the answer is guns. it's simply ridiculous. >> we'll go inside the mind of a killer. what dr. oz thinks we should do about menta
died. and in the case of the school in newtown, we know that that's what happened again, even in a greater magnitude. i think we're at a point now where people said enough. every grandparent, like myself, every parent who has a young child, is looking at the situation and saying, we cannot let this happen again. so i believe that the american people are going to take a different look at what happened last friday. and they're going to demand, as they should, that those of us who have been sent to congress, to make action and to do what's right by our country, that we're going to actually do something. and we must do something. and that's what my commitment is, as i think are many more members of congress' commitments. including people who have traditionally supported -- the national rifle association has supported by it. to make it clear, i'm a second amendment supporter. i believe that's a good amendment for our country. but we have to move beyond that. these weapons have no place in the school. as you your previously guest suggested. we have to deal with this problem on two l

power of the tragedy in newtown, connecticut, to try to put the pressure on republicans. he talked about them taking off their partisan war paint. he said he'd more than met them halfway in terms of spending cuts that he's offered, coming up in the income threshold for tax increases, and he has the upper hand in public opinion. there's no question about that. he is not surrendering that at this point. the question is whether speaker john boehner can move his caucus, even as far as he's already moved further toward the president. that's what the next couple days are going to be about. >> thank you very much, john. do you think, you think really sort of rumbling that we're hearing means that we have actually moved further away from the possibility of what i'm going to call the first of the 12 days of cliffness? >> insiders in both parties are telling me they think the prospects of no deal and going over the cliff have risen significantly. now, i continue to think that the fundamentals exist, as the president said in his news conference, there are only a few hundred billion dollars apart ov
